PC Specialist Recoil 17 aka Tongfang GM7PX8N


Recommended Posts

I have the following laptop:


Chassis & Display    Recoil Series: 17" Matte QHD 240Hz sRGB 100% LED Widescreen (2560x1600)
Processor (CPU)    Intel® Core™ i9 24 Core Processor 13900HX (5.4GHz Turbo)
Memory (RAM)    32GB Corsair 4800MHz SODIMM DDR5 (2 x 16GB)
Graphics Card    NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 4090 - 16.0GB GDDR6 Video RAM - DirectX® 12.1
Liquid Series® Laptop Cooling    PCS Liquid Series® Laptop Cooler
1st M.2 SSD Drive    2TB SAMSUNG 990 PRO M.2, PCIe 4.0 NVMe (up to 7450MB/R, 6900MB/W)
AC Adaptor    1 x 330W AC Adaptor


I have a few questions that I hope you guys could help with:

I'm currently hitting 23,367 in timespy. My GPU is hitting 175w but my CPU is maxing at around 115w. The liquid cooler means I have headroom to push more watts to the CPU and/or the GPU but my BIOS (currently running the XMG NEO 17 BIOS) is limited in it's functionality. The 13900HX is unlocked and overclockable by Intel's design but all of the available BIOSes are locked down. How do I get around this?


I only have a single power option in windows and that is Balanced, I've tried all of the online suggestions for having the additional power plans but not have worked. Is the High and Ultimate power plans blocked in the BIOS? Can I get around this too?


Historically I would have used a PremaMod BIOS but PCSpecialist is not a Prema Partner so I don't have that option, are there alternatives?

I welcome all suggestions.

Hello Misjah,


I saw that you currently are running the XMG NEO bios? How did you do this on your PC Specialist Recoil laptop? I own an Tongfang GM7PX8N, that is the exact same as an Recoil 17", XMG NEO 17 E23, Eluktronics Mech-17 GP2 or Wootbook Ultra X16 (16 inch model). I'm facing difficulties with freezes during gaming (especially playing Cyberpunk 2077).


Maybe you can try the control panel from XMG for the more powerfull options (I can choose overclocking options through it); it can be downloaded from here:



Thanks in advance!


Kind regards,

Hi Vandiekie,


I flashed the BIOS from a USB drive.



1. Prepare USB thumb drive, formatted with with FAT32.
2. Unzip content of EFI Shell into the root of the thumb drive.
3. Unzip content of EC and/or BIOS updates into your thumb drive (creating subfolders is OK).
4. Make sure system is ‘plugged in’ with external power.
5. Reboot and disable ‘Secure Boot’ in BIOS Setup (press F2 to enter BIOS Setup).
6. Boot from USB thumb drive (press F7 to select boot media during reboot).
7. Navigate folder structure in EFI shell and run .NSH files to execute the update.
8. Wait for the update to complete. Do not manually shutdown or reboot the system during the update!
9. If your update consist of multiple parts (multiple ZIP files or subfolders), run the updates one after another.
10. When update is complete, reboot and enter BIOS Setup.
11. In the “Exit” menu, select “Load Defaults” (or “Optimized Defaults” or similar).
12. Finally, finish by selecting “Save & Exit” (or “Save & Reset” or similar).


I hope that helps.
